The core of Kuala Lumpur has 1.8 million residents. And over 11 million international and almost five million domestic tourists pour into the city each year. This qualifies Kuala Lumpur as the ninth most visited city in the world. In short, expect the famous sites and streets to be bustling with activity like the pedestrian-only Kasturi Walk shown here. Those crowds can be exhilarating and exhausting. The main zones are also safe yet obviously require the vigilance needed when touring any major city. So, enjoy exploring the capital of Malaysia.
